with the obama administration. there are other people who probably share every bit of mr. perez's views as relates to the use of the law, labor unions, empowering labor unions, fighting against employers who don't want to offer benefits and union access. there's probably somebody who does all of those things, but isn't as controversial as mr. perez, but in choosing mr. perez the president sends a clear message to republicans that says obama 2.0 is still on. >> megyn: we mentioned some of the sound bites in the introduction about mr. perez from somebody who used to work at the doj. that somebody is jay christian adams, he was a do jchj attorne and he worked on the new black panthers case that mr. perez testified about earlier and an openly conservative man. mr. perez is not. so they clearly have an ideological divide between the two of them. he went on the mark levin radio show last week and had the following to say about mr. perez. >> totally lawless. this is a man for whom law is a nuisance. he brings the cases, you might remember, against school districts to allow children to dress in

arizona and the obama administration. this time, over the state requirement that those who seek to register to vote provide proof of u.s. citizenship. arizona registration form requires more proof than the simpler federal form. on which applicants check a box, ind kateing u.s. citizen think, sign attesting to that fact and drop it in the mail. arizona argues that it doesn't conflict with the federal form but serves as an additional barrier against voting by non-u.s. citizens. >> if somebody is willing to fraudulently vote that person would be willing to sign fals falsely. so the signature doesn't mean anything. we need evidence that the person is a citizen. >> justice scalia sounded skeptical of the streamlined federal form. "check off, i am a citizen, right? so it's under oath. big deal. if you are willing to violate the voting laws i suppose you're willing to violate the perjury laws." despite issue the arizona officials say they are facing justices like ruth bader ginsberg said there are statutes saying they must accept and use the federal form period. that is the end of it.

sequestration gave the obama administration a political reason to release deportable aliens. surely otherle budgetary considerations could have come first such as cutting conferences or detailees or travel. releasing illegal immigrants ves them little incentive to report themselves. many will become fugitives. further more, the director has indicated that i.c.e. has had to reapprehend four out of the 10 of the illegal immigrant for more severe crimes. to make matters worse, many of these individuals released lack the money, family, support, and the ability to get a job. not just because they are present in violation of the law but because they have a criminal record. this is a ultimately, the nonsensical action demonstrates the inability and a lack of desire on behalf of the administration to enforce the law, even against illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. to make matters worse, they undermine the goodwill necessary to develop a common sense, step- by-step approach to improving our immigration laws. pleasureime, it is my to recognize the ranking member of the committee, the gen
